Description:

Few people know this, but Atalanta Bergamo has a very good football academy, of which in the last 20 years came out a number of very good players such as Massimo Donati, Manolo Gabbiadini, Domenico Morfeo or Alessio Tacchinardi. Mario, nicknamed Ryan, is now the leader and one of the best players of Atalanta Primavera squad, in other words – Atalanta youth team. This very mature for his age midfielder was a member of the Italy U-17 team, which won a silver medal at the UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship 2013 in Slovakia. At this tournament Pugliese was a true star, he scored two goals and thanks to this he became a top scorer of the competition along with three other players. It is worth mentioning that his idol player and a role model is Roy Keane – one of the greatest Manchester United players of all time.

 

Quotes:

“That’s maybe second Gattuso . For his character, as he can be master of himself and also well-liked by his companions. Not by chance he has a penchant for the Premier League and doted on the spirit of the warrior of Roy Keane.”

(Mino Favini – Atalanta head of youth development)
